Holiday Party – December 12th

Be sure to mark your calendars (and reply to the Evite) to attend this year’s SBYC Holiday Party, being held at the Elliott Bay Brewing Company’s Cascade Room in Lake City on December 12.
We have a special guest coming, thanks to Rubie Johnson.  Ms. Iole Alessandrini is a renowned artist, born in Italy but now living in our area.  IoleographyTM is an original technique developed by Iole Alessandrini, who combined her name “Iole” with “photography” and/or “holography” to describe her innovative approach to creating Laser Plane photographs. Laser Plane photography entails positioning a Laser Plane between the subjects and the camera, capturing their movements as they intersect with the plane.  In October 2023, Iole and 30 other world-class artists boarded a classic barquentine sailboat in Norway and set sail for a 2-week trip to the Arctic.  During the voyage, Iole worked to capture imagery of the northern Arctic via her special Laser Plane work in hopes of creating more visibility for climate change and better environmental action.  See more at
The special date of December 12 is earlier in the month than usual, in order to avoid conflicting with other holiday events in the week of the 18th. An Evite was sent early in order to ensure time for everyone to save room on their calendars. Even though this new format does not involve capturing everyone’s individual meal choice via Evite, we still need to know how many folks will be attending, so please reply to the Evite.  The buffet meal will include Cobb Salad, Fish & Chips, Carnitas Tacos, Chicken Tenders, and Cuban Sandwiches.  Cost is $27 for cash/check and $29 for credit card payment.
In addition to some slides of her work and the Arctic voyage, moderated by Iole Alessandrini, the meeting will feature the retirement of this year’s Board of Directors and an introduction of the 2024 Board.  Holiday decorations will abound, with holiday music in the background and the bartender serving up good holiday libations.
